High Overtime Payments to Individuals at Hudson River Psychiatric Center (Follow-Up Report)

Hudson River Psychiatric Center provides inpatient care and community services to mentally ill individuals at various locations in Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster Counties. In audit 2006-S-81, we examined certain aspects of the Center’s overtime payments and found that some employees worked extensive overtime hours.
